Paper revisions submitted

Took a ridiculous amount of time to prep everything the way they require it and get through the arduous submission process for the revisions. But it's done.

Completed and tested the questionnaire

Today:

  • Completed the first draft of the content.
  • Finished the scripting (bash and XSLT) to create a valid XHTML5 version, with valid CSS.
  • Added a mechanism (rather crude) for showing progress through the questions.
  • Did a lot of layout tweaks. More work will need to be done to make it attractive.

Questionnaire half done

Got about half-way through the questionnaire, and mostly past the difficult bits. This doesn't include explanatory material that we really ought to add as well, but that can be put in after the paper is submitted.

Processing for interviews

Began writing the code that will handle processing the interviews and generating analyses. So far, I've enhanced the HTML output to show word-counts next to each category of annotation; I need to update that to add a percentage of the content, although that might better be done as pre-processing for the XML. I've also done some file-name normalization (there was a lot of variation that got in the way of matching and decoding dates etc.), and I've also written a routine that extracts a plain-text version of all the utterances of the interviewee, so that they can be subject to similarity metrics and analyses of various kinds.

Also: team meeting today, with discussion of where we go with the analyses; went over a presentation with LG, and started planning an interactive questionnaire that we might present at DH 2019 along with some of our findings.
